Abstract: Sanaa: Child trafficking in Yemen is not a phenomenon, but it is a problem that must be solved, said a Yemeni minister. "It is a burning problem that can't be ignored," Yemeni Minister of Social Affairs and Labour, Amat Al Razzaq Humad, told the upper chamber of parliament, Shura Council, which held a session on Wednesday to discuss the issue of labour and smuggling of children in the presence of all concerned bodies. According to officials and statistics, 900 children were smuggled to Saudi Arabia during 2006 and about two million children do not go to school. The minister told the Shura Council that the street children were a 'time bomb'.
